Students only enrolling in the Summer Session who are not participating in the Academic Session will be charged a $10 registration fee.
Automatic Payment System – We offer an automatic payment system. Tuition is paid every month on a continuous basis for the entire session. On the first day of each month, we will charge the credit/debit card number we have on file for you in our secured system. Summer session requires re-enrollment and is not automatic.
Alternate Payment Methods – We also accept check or cash. Please make checks out to “Blaze Gymnastics.” Payment must be received in the office by the first of each month. If payment is not received by the tenth (10th) of each month, we will charge the credit or debit card on file the full tuition plus a $25 late fee.
Returned Check Fees – If a check is returned, we will charge the credit or debit card on file the full tuition plus a $25 returned check fee.

WITHDRAWING FROM THE PROGRAM
To withdraw your child’s enrollment, please notify the office in writing at least 5 days prior to the start of the next month. Written notice to withdraw must be received by 5 days prior or your credit card will be charged.
If you withdraw your child, please be sure ALL make-ups are done prior to withdrawing. NO MAKE-UPS will be honored after your child has withdrawn from the program. All make-ups are forfeited after withdrawing from the program.
We offer make-ups to currently enrolled students. Make-ups must be completed 60 days from the date that the class was missed and cannot be carried over to a new session.
Make-ups are not offered for inclement weather closings.
Make-ups must be taken while a child is enrolled. Once a child withdraws from the program, all make-ups are forfeited.
Make-ups must be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance.
Once a make-up is scheduled, if you miss that make-up class, it still counts as a make-up.
We reserve the right to refuse to offer a makeup if we feel it will affect safety or lessen the experience of those children who have registered for and paid for that class.
Tuition pays for your child’s spot in class regardless of attendance.
There will be no refunds given for gym closings including holidays and inclement weather.
Once we have re-enrolled your child in class there are no refunds. WRITTEN NOTICE to drop must be received 5 days prior to the start of the next term or your credit card will be charged.
SNOW, WEATHER, AND EMERGENCY CLOSING POLICY
Cancellations of classes/programs are not based on school weather closings. If we decide to cancel/close, we will post on the local news stations, Facebook and our website. There will be no refunds or make ups issued for classes missed due to inclement weather closings.
MULTIPLE CHILD DISCOUNT
We are happy to provide a tuition discount of $5.00 off each month for additional children in your family.
STUDENT STATUS AND CHANGES
Current students are automatically re-enrolled for the same class every month until the current session ends. When a student advances to a higher level, it may become necessary to change the class day and time. When this occurs, please contact the front desk to make those changes. Registration for a different class is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Joining a class after the first day of the month
We will prorate your tuition for the amount of class days left in the term.
Girls – Leotard or leotard and biker shorts are recommended (we have leotards for sale at the gym). They can also wear shorts and a t-shirt.
Boys – T-shirt and shorts/sweatpants.
No jewelry with the exception of post earrings. Hair must be pulled tightly away from the face. No gum.
We have chairs set up for parents to view classes. For the safety of your children and for insurance reasons, anyone (including siblings) not participating in a class MUST remain in the designated viewing area. Parents & siblings are not permitted on the gymnastics equipment/mats (classes specifically including parent participation are the only exception) We are not equipped to supervise children before or after class.
WHAT CLASS SHOULD I SIGN MY CHILD UP FOR?
Please sign your child up for the class that corresponds to his or her age and ability. Our skilled coaches will evaluate your child during their first class and make changes according to their skills. It is much harder for a child to move down than it is to move them up.
For safety reasons, students are not allowed on the floor or equipment before or after class. When class is over, the students must leave the training area.
Parents may observe their child in class but MUST stay in the viewing area.
Our insurance does not allow parents and non-registered students in the training area. No parents or non-gymnasts are allowed on the floor. Please keep your other children off the floor and equipment at all times. Blaze Gymnastics accepts no responsibility and liability for accidents or injuries, which occur to anyone not enrolled in classes at the gym.
No food or drinks other than water are allowed on or near the floor. No shoes and/or gum are permitted on the gym’s floor.
Communicating with students during class is a distraction to everyone and should be avoided for safety reasons.
You are responsible for dropping off and picking up your student on time, as there is no supervision before or after the end of the class
